No crime drama fan worth their salt will have lived their life up until now without having watched The Fall.
But for those who are yet to sit down to one of the genre's defining TV series, there's good news: all three runs are coming to Netflix.
Yes, the streamer announced the exciting news that the gripping crime serial, which ran on BBC Two from 2013 to 2016, is hitting the platform on 1st August.
"All 3 seasons of The Fall are coming to Netflix on 1 August if you're into Jamie Dornan, Gillian Anderson, moody thrillers, the accents, or all of the above," Netflix wrote on Twitter.
The series, set in Northern Ireland, stars Fifty Shades actor Jamie Dornan as the terrifying (yet uncomfortably sexy) serial killer Paul Spector and The Crown's Gillian Anderson as Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson - the agent tasked with capturing him.
The first season, which aired in 2013, saw DS Gibson assigned to the Police Service of Northern Ireland to investigated a murder investigation that has been opened for more than 28 days.
Stella come to realise that a serial killer is on the loose, who has an MO for attacking young professional women in the city of Belfast.
As time goes on, Stella's work and personal lives become evermore intertwined in the case as the elusive Paul Spector's killing streak rages on uncomfortably close to home.
Series 2 and 3, which aired in 2014 and 2016, followed DS Gibson and the ever-complicated obstacles flung in her way in the pursuit of capturing Spector, whose body count continues to rise.
*Major spoilers ahead...* The final series saw Spector arrested for the killing of Susan Harper, recounting her murder as a sex game gone wrong that lead him down his grisly path.
In the finale, Stella recieves a brutal beating from Spector in the police interrogation room.
The series ends with Spector killing his cellmate with a belt and then asphyxiating himself with the same belt, just as his first victim and mother died.
If you haven't watched The Fall yet, make sure you catch it on Netflix come 1st August.
